  • I know how you feel. I have a 3, 4, & 10 yr old who are always fighting. Excpecially when we all get into the car it seems like as soon as we get out of the driveway it like someting in there heads goes off and says it's time to start fighting. I feel sorry for my 10 yr old b/c right now all we have is a little car and they all have to sit in the back seat and the two little ones are on the outside w/the my 10yr old in the middle and I swear they use him for a punching bag. I try to keep stuff in the car like coloring books and crayons to keep them entertained. It's actually started to work b/c they're backing off on the fighting.

  • ignore the behavior until they adress you respectfully......easier said then done but if you stick to your guns then it should work.
